Published: 15 Sep 2010

Dr. Alain Pinsonneault is a world-renowned scientific leader in the study of information technologies and organizations. Solidly anchored in management and psychology, Dr. Pinsonneault's research examines how information technologies change the work of managers, structures of organizations, and group dynamics; and how they create new forms of organizations, namely virtual teams and organizations. His pioneering work developed several conceptual frameworks that have helped scholars in management to advance their understanding of the business value of information technologies. Leading numerous multi-disciplinary research teams, he has fostered collaboration among scientists of many fields including management, psychology, information technology, medicine, and economic.

The objective of the Royal Society of Canada is to promote learning and intellectual accomplishments of exceptional quality. The RSC recognizes remarkable contributions in the arts, humanities and sciences, as well as in Canadian public life.

The RSC elects a total of approximately 75 Fellows per year. The RSC also elects up to 6 Specially Elected Fellows per year, for contributions to the objectives of the society other than by scholarship and research.  Finally, a number of Foreign Fellows are elected annually.

The RSC is governed by a 19-member Council, and by a 9-member Executive Committee of Council. Financial support is mainly from three sources: Fellows' subscriptions, membership contributions from 42 universities throughout Canada, and private sector support.
